Live Performance and Interview with Gracie and Rachel
On September 22 at 5:00, Gracie and Rachel, an orchestral-pop duo will be on WPTS Radio. Tune in and listen to a live interview as well as a live performance before they play at Club Café.
Orchestral pop piano-violin duo, Gracie and Rachel, crafts intricate tunes combining classical string elements with haunting, fierce vocals, augmented by sparse but powerful percussion. Ivory satin lined with teeth, the duo finds beauty in stark simplicity, pausing to breathe a hint of the abstract into the highly emotive, evolved body they create. Playing venues like City Winery, (le) poisson rouge, and Mercury Lounge over the past year and with the release of their latest single, “Tiptoe,” Gracie and Rachel’s NYC audience has expanded quickly into other markets across the country. “Tiptoe” was premiered by NPR-affiliate WNYC Soundcheck on July 10th, 2015 and released worldwide the same day, it was followed shortly thereafter by a WNYC Soundcheck In-Studio Session with John Schaefer. A national tour with much-loved Dangerbird Records artist, Holly Miranda begins September 15th. In their track premiere for “Tiptoe,” WNYC Soundcheck said about Gracie and Rachel’s live show, “The two play off each other not only musically but mentally. Different shades of the same emotion appear simultaneously on their faces and flow through their instruments. A tangled and intimate connection between the two is apparent on stage and will no doubt imprint on their upcoming debut.”
Their forthcoming debut album, GO, is a penetrating record about self-exploration, which flows freely between virtuosic violin textures to sylphlike melodies, highlighting seasoned songwriting. The result: a heartfelt glimpse into two artists’ lives intertwined. From the pit of despair to the summit of success, Gracie and Rachel will always be headed somewhere new.
